Recent trends in MFT trainings and conferences point to a rapid growth of interest in outcome research and its application in clinical practice. There is good reason to expect that basic skills in reading and interpreting research, plus an overview knowledge of the current evidence for the effectiveness of MFT, will become increasingly important on your exam.

This course provides you with a summary of the current state of knowledge in MFT outcome research together with a refresher on the basic skills in reading and evaluating research.

The course also provides 25 exam-style questions on this topic. All questions include in-depth discussion of why one answer is considered correct, and the others incorrect. Take the quiz as many times as you like. Make sure you understand the reasoning behind every question.

Scope of this course: Crisis Management - Practice Domain #5, AMFTRB national MFT exam preparation. The purpose of this course is to help you prepare for the Crisis Management section (Practice Domain Area 5 and all of its subdomains) of the AMFTRB (amftrb.org) national exam for licensing MFT’s in the US. 

The text of the course will provide background in family systems ideas about crisis and emergencies, and compare those to other ideas in mainstream psychology, both of which will be tested on your exam. In addition, prevalent models and approaches to common emergency and crisis situations will be reviewed. 

A bank of 25 MFT exam-style multiple choice vignette questions will also be provided. These questions all come with discussions, and will provide you with the reasoning about why one answer is considered correct, and why each of the others is consider not correct. 

Family Solution's is pleased to offer individualized study coaching for those of you who are taking the test and feel you could benefit from a 1-1 relationship with a Family Solutions Faculty member.
